Tesla have announced a new studio album, Shock, for release on March 8 via UMe. The album is produced and co-written by Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen. The band also released the title cut as a single on Jan. 18. Listen to it below. Shock is Tesla’s eighth studio album; pre-order is available here. They are actively touring across North America and elsewhere around the globe throughout 2019.

In their 35+ years, Tesla have earned several platinum records and sold a reported 15 million albums. They have two Top 10 hits on the Hot 100: 1989’s “Love Song” and 1991’s re-release of “Signs.”

From the Shock album announcement: “Tesla may have been born in the mid ’80s eruption of leather, spandex and big hair, but this band has never been about those things. Their bluesy, soulful sound is strongly embedded in the roots of organic, authentic 1970s rock and roll.”

Tesla is Brian Wheat (bass/keys/backing vocals), Frank Hannon (guitars/backing vocals), Jeff Keith (lead vocals), Troy Luccketta (drums/percussion) and Dave Rude (guitar/backing vocals).
